As the Skype Correspondent, I constantly am jetting off to new adventures and events. I am so grateful to work in the industry I do, but my busy travel schedule (I’ll be in Miami, New York City and LA just this month) often keeps me away from my family.
But, thanks to Skype, I won’t have to miss a thing this holiday season.
I have a large family and we’re pretty spread out — I’m in LA and my parents, sister and many relatives are back in Ohio. During the holidays, we stay connected using Skype Group Video Calls because there’s no better way to feel like we’re actually together. In fact, these virtual visits are ideal for multiple reasons. My family and I get to catch up via Skype…and I can enjoy the sunshine here in warm southern California instead of shoveling snow from the driveway in the frigid Midwest. I’d say that is a win-win!
Capturing the Moment
My family loves to know what I am up to, and since I am not around as often as I would like, I try to take as many photos as possible. This holiday season, I plan to take even more photos than normal, and share those images with my family on email, upload them to all my social media channels and file sharing them over Skype (that way I have all of my bases covered).
Big thanks to Skype and technology for helping me to be home for the holidays.
